Wrapping correct red and white aesthetics around a correct Tri-power/4-speed drivetrain, this slick Impala is the kind of well-done classic that'll have you racking up trophies and dreaming of sunsets!
The proud recipient of 2014 AACA First Junior and Senior awards, this impressive Impala is only test miles removed from a 5-year, nut-and-bolt rotisserie restoration. Discovered in long-term storage back in 2007, the car was promptly purchased, completely dismantled and fitted with new floors, new rockers and thoroughly worked quarters. With that metal solid and freshly blocked, bright white vinyl was stretched over a correct coat of Roman Red 2-stage. And, in March of 2014, the car debuted as a fully reborn classic that's poised to show and raring to go!
Under the hood, 348 cubic inches of Super Turbo Thrust V8 proudly displays a correct **¶FA**¶ suffix stamp in front of a correct 3755011 casting number. A staple of working-class luxury, this impressive, big torque big block is one of the many reasons the Impala enjoys such fantastic name recognition. And absolutely every item from its thick coat of Chevy Orange paint to its unique, bowtie-branded valve covers has been rebuilt, refinished or replaced. Front and center, a Satin Black, dual-snorkel air cleaner funnels wind in to a fully restored tri-power set up that includes three Rochester carburetors and a network of stainless fuel lines. At the sides of those carbs, restored exhaust manifolds allow the oversquare cylinders ample breathing room by funneling spent gases in to correct, true-dual pipes. At the back of those manifolds, a traditional points distributor sequences fire between a fresh coil and correct Radio GM plug wires. Cooling is provided by a beefy radiator, which sends water past correct tower clamps via reproduction GM hoses. Charge comes courtesy of a reproduction Delco yellow cap battery, which jolts a tagged Delco-Remy generator. And the car's Satin Black engine bay, which is as clean as the paint on its body, serves as an ideal backdrop for the mill's many different textures.
A correct Borg Warner 4-speed spins a familiar GM rear end that literally sails the engine through its broad power band. Under that capable drivetrain, a bead-blasted and fully rebuilt suspension has been equipped with optional power steering and power drum brakes. And, at the corners of that suspension, 8.00-14 BF Goodrich Silvertown whitewalls frame restored, original wheel covers.
Decked in correct red and white vinyl, this Impala's stunning interior has been restored to factory-fresh condition in virtually every way. The wide bench seats feel newer than the car's 54 years would suggest, and present just as well now as the day they rolled out of the upholstery shop. At the front of those panels, a restored dash, which is chock full of rebuilt gauges, carries a Straight Line Tuning pushbutton radio. And, in front of the driver, a color-keyed steering wheel laps a classic Impala centerpiece.
Quality never goes out of style. And when you drive this drop-top, you can literally watch the crowds form! Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information.
